Burying the return of the 60009 Union of South Africa steam locomotive in November

0

The East Lancashire Railway has announced that LNER A4 # 60009 ‘Union of South Africa’ will return to Bury Bolton Street in November.

On November 6 and 7, 2021, the iconic steam locomotive will be on static display for people to take photos.

The A4 was scheduled to be on display Saturday and Sunday at the recent Fall Steam Gala, which ran from Friday October 15 through Sunday October 17.

However, due to “operational issues”, the locomotive could not be displayed on the Sunday of the event.

There are no other confirmed exhibition days for the Union of South Africa, so this may be your last chance to see the locomotive before it moves elsewhere for retirement.
